Would You Visit an Offbeat Historical Landmark?

Tourists flock to Mt. Rushmore, the Washington Monument and Civil War landmarks like Fort Fisher in North Carolina each year, but would you consider seeking out a more salacious historical site?

The restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport where Republican Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a sex sting is losing its appeal as a tourist stop, according to an official.

Craig was accused of soliciting sex in the bathroom in June 2007 and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct later that Summer. Word is one person offered to buy the restroom stall for $5,000, but airport officials say they don't sell fixtures for novelty purposes. The men's room is described as the "busiest restroom at Minneapolis-St. Paul International," and is in the middle of the main thoroughfare, but no doubt many travelers popped in after hearing Craig's tale.

I'd definitely visit the place where a president was assassinated over the place where a senator was arrested for soliciting sex. Especially if the latter was a mens restroom at an airport. Yeesh.

It's way offbeat, and a whole lot of tacky. If I travel through the airport, maybe. I'm not making a special trip to visit a site like this. What next, the dirt road where Bonnie and Clyde were killed, or the grassy knoll where JFK was killed??

I have actually been to that bathroom! It was about two weeks after it happened. I didn't go in, being that I'm a girl, so I got my brother to take a picture for me (I'm sure he was thrilled). It's a little tacky and a little weird, but it's all in good fun.

Offbeat is interesting. This is just tacky, though. eewwww Fuzzles: No worries! I don't think of this story in reference to the Twin Cities. I think of the "flying imams" and the Somali cab drivers who won't transport dogs, booze or gays. I'm in Southern California, and we generally have the corner on the tasteless and tacky market, so any mockery is in good humor....

Heck ya I love visiting this kind of crap. I grew up in Hollywood, CA where global tourists annoyed the crap out of me when I was a kid. So as an adult I dork out anywhere I travel especially if it isn't related to the entertainment industry.

That's just what we Minnesotans want people to think of when the Twin Cities are mentioned. Thanks, Toe Tappin' Larry!

I wonder if this would have been as big of a story if it were Rep. Barney Frank instead of Senator Craig. Methinks it wouldn't have been a scandal and would have turned into some gay rights crusade.
